How To Pray? The Power of Fasting and Praying


Shalam Ahch wa Ahchwath, It is very important for us to know how to Pray, which way to Pray, What to say after Praying and the Power of Fasting and Praying.

How to Pray

When Praying to the Most High, we should pray facing towards the East, towards the Holy land, Jerusalem.

To understand which way is the East or towards the Holy land, Jerusalem, look outside in the morning and see where the Sun is raising and that’s the direction of the East. Which everyway the sun raises in your location that’s the East.

Which Way To Pray?

1 Kings 8:48-49
King James Version (KJV)

48 And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name:

49 Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause,

Precept to 1 Kings 8:48:

2 Chronicles 6:38
King James Version (KJV)

38 If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, whither they have carried them captives, and pray toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house which I have built for thy name:

Psalm 5:7
King James Version (KJV)

7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

Daniel 6:10
King James Version (KJV)

10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.

(The Most High tells us in verse 48 to pray unto him towards our land, which is the Holy land Jeruslam, Israel. The Holy land is towards the East and with the precepts we get a better understanding of which dirction to pray.)

How to Pray?

Mark 11:25
King James Version (KJV)

25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Precepts to Mark 11:25:

Matthew 6:14
King James Version (KJV)

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

Ephesians 4:32
King James Version (KJV)

32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as the Power for Messiah’s sake hath forgiven you.

Colossians 3:13
King James Version (KJV)

13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Messiah forgave you, so also do ye.

(We see that we are to stand praying. Standing was their (children of Israel/Jews) usual posture when they prayed to the Most High.)

1 Timothy 2:8
King James Version (KJV)

8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

Precepts to 1 Timothy 2:8:

Malachi 1:11

11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the Most High of hosts.

(We see that we pray with our arms open.)

Matthew 6:6-8
King James Version (KJV)

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Precept to Matthew 6:6:

2 Kings 4:33
King James Version (KJV)

33 He went in therefore, and shut the door upon them twain, and prayed unto the Most High.

Jeremiah 17:10

26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.

Precept to Matthew 6:8:

Psalm 139:2
King James Version (KJV)

2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

(When you pray go into your closet and ask the Father for what you want, but dont talk as long as the heathens do, for the Father knows what you want, so get straight to the point as stated in Ecclesiastes 5:2. When you pray this must be done as secretly as possibly so the father can reward you openly. Don’t tell anyway what you have prayed for.)

What to say after you pray?

Matthew 6:9-13
King James Version (KJV)

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. So be it.

(After you have prayed and made your request know unto the Father, say the Holy Prayer.)

Men are NOT to Cover there Head when they Pray

1 Corinthians 11:4
King James Version (KJV)

4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.

(Every man Praying or Prophesying with is head covered dishonoureth his head.)

1 Corinthians 11:7
King James Version (KJV)

7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

Precept to 1 Corinthians 11:7:

Genesis 1:26
King James Version (KJV)

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

(As stated in the 1 Corinthians 11:7 men aren’t to cover there head when they pray. Women are to cover their heads if they are bold head meaning have no hair, because a womans hair is her covering. So if a woman be shaven (no hair on her head) she is instructed to cover her head with a scarf. Women are to cover their head when Praying and Prophesying or when the scriptures are being read.)

Fasting:

From the Pseudepigrapha: The Didache Chapter 8. Fasting and Prayer (the Most High’s Prayer). But let not your fasts be with the hypocrites, for they fast on the second and fifth day of the week. Rather, fast on the fourth day and the Preparation (Friday). Do not pray like the hypocrites, but rather as the Most High commanded in His Gospel, like this:

Matthew 6:9-13

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. So be it.

Pray this three times each day towards the East only. (Evening, when the sun is about to go down, Morning when the sun comes up & Noon when the sun is at its highest peek or the middle of the day which is 12pm or 3pm.)

Psalm 55:17
King James Version (KJV)

17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.

What must you do while you’re Fasting?

Matthew 6:9-13
King James Version (KJV)

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. So be it.

(You must say this prayer 3 times a day towards the East: (Evening, Morning, & Noon).

What NOT to do while you’re Fasting

Matthew 6:16
King James Version (KJV)

16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Precept to Matthew 6:16:

Isaiah 58:5
King James Version (KJV)
5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Most High?

(As we have just read in Matthew 6:16 be not as the hypocrites of a sad countenance, meaning walking around with a sad face, that they may appear unto men, when you fast this is between you and the Most High.)

The Power of Fasting & Praying

1 Samuel 7:3-12
King James Version (KJV)

3 And Samuel spake unto all the house of Israel, saying, If ye do return unto the Most High with all your hearts, then put away the strange gods and Ashtaroth from among you, and prepare your hearts unto the Most High, and serve him only: and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines.

4 Then the children of Israel did put away Baalim and Ashtaroth, and served the Most High only.

5 And Samuel said, Gather all Israel to Mizpeh, and I will pray for you unto the Most High.

6 And they gathered together to Mizpeh, and drew water, and poured it out before the Most High, and fasted on that day, and said there, We have sinned against the Most High. And Samuel judged the children of Israel in Mizpeh.

7 And when the Philistines heard that the children of Israel were gathered together to Mizpeh, the lords of the
Philistines went up against Israel. And when the children of Israel heard it, they were afraid of the Philistines.

8 And the children of Israel said to Samuel, Cease not to cry unto the Most High our Power for us, that he will save us out of the hand of the Philistines.

9 And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered it for a burnt offering wholly unto the Lord: and Samuel cried unto the Most High for Israel; and the Most High heard him.

10 And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but the Most High thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them; and they were smitten before Israel.

11 And the men of Israel went out of Mizpeh, and pursued the Philistines, and smote them, until they came under Bethcar.

And Samuel judged the children of Israel in Mizpeh.” So when they (children of Israel) wanted to repent from their sins and evil doing they fasted. Also noticed it said they drew water and poured it out, you see they could have drunk the water, but they didn’t they poured it out while they begin their fast. So when you have sinned before the Most High and need a blessing we must repent and fast. )

2 Chronicles 20:1-18

1 It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle.

2 Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi.

3 And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Most High, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.

4 And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the Most High: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Most High.

5 And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Most High, before the new court,

6 And said, O Most High Power of our fathers, art not thou Power in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?

7 Art not thou our Power, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever?

8 And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying,

9 If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.

10 And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not;

11 Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit.

12 O our Power, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.

13 And all Judah stood before the Most High, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.

15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Most High unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but the Powers.

16 To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.

17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Most High with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Most High will be with you.

18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the Most High, worshipping the Most High.

(We see that the Most High heard their prayers and told them they didn’t need to fight ,for the battle is not yours. Now jump down to verse 22 and 23 to see what happen to the enemies of Israel, read below.)

King James Version (KJV)

21 Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our Power, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance.

22 For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our Power is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him.

23 So we fasted and besought our Power for this: and he was intreated of us.

(We see in 2 Chronicles 20:2-4 Jehoshaphat proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah so they can get victory over there enemies. Verse 4 says “And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the Most High: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Most High.” You see they wanted help from the Most High’s o what did they do? They fasted. If you notice the The Most High POWER seemed to notice people when they fasted its something to Fasting. If you continue to read and in 2 Chronicles 20:13-18 we see that the Most High heard there prayers and they didn’t need to fight, also we read that in 2 Chronicles 20:22-23 the enemies was smitten. We see that the Most High POWER did help them after they fasted. Fasting is very IMPORTANT people.)

Nehemiah 1:1-7
King James Version (KJV)

1 The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the palace,

2 That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem.

3 And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.

4 And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,

5 And said, I beseech thee, O Most High Power of heaven, the great and terrible Power, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:

6 Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father’s house have sinned.

2 Kings 25:10
King James Version (KJV)

10 And all the army of the Chaldees, that were with the captain of the guard, brake down the walls of Jerusalem round about.

(We see that Nehemiah who was a prophet fasted and prayed because he wanted a blessing by the Most High POWER and victory over the situation. That’s why its important for all of us to pray and fast before our Father who art in Heaven, so we can get victory or a blessing in any situation that we may be going through, I say to fast and pray. Read Nehemiah chapter 2 and on and see how the Most High heard his prayers.)

Jonah 3:1-10
King James Version (KJV)

1 And the word of the Most High came unto Jonah the second time, saying,

2 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee.

3 So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the Most High. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days’ journey.

4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.

5 So the people of Nineveh believed Power, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.

6 For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.

7 And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water:

8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.

9 Who can tell if Power will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?

10 And the Power saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and the Power repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.

11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Most High Power, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

Daniel 4:27
King James Version (KJV)

27 Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquility.

(Jonah went to Ninveh and preached to those people and they repented, and when they repented and turned from there evil ways. You see the Most high was suppose to destroy Ninveh for there sins, and they thought maybe if we fast and give something up of ourselves then maybe the Most High would bless them and thats what he did, he blessed them. You see fasting works people. There was no eating nor drinking when they fasted.)

Exodus 34:27-31
King James Version (KJV)

27 And the Most High said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.

28 And he was there with the Most High forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.

30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.

31 And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them.

2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

(You see Moses fasted 40 days and 40 nights he eat nothing nor did he drink anything. In verse 29 when Moses came down from the Mountain his face was shining and the people was afraid of him. These was after he did that fast. Its something about fasting.)

Daniel 9:2-6
King James Version (KJV)

2 In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Most High came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

3 And I set my face unto the Most High Power, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:

4 And I prayed unto the Most High my Power, and made my confession, and said, O Most High, the great and dreadful Power, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;

5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:

6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

Precepts to Daniel 9:2:

2 Chronicles 36:21
King James Version (KJV)

21 To fulfil the word of the Most High by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfil threescore and ten years.

Nehemiah 9:33-34
King James Version (KJV)

33 Howbeit thou art just in all that is brought upon us; for thou hast done right, but we have done wickedly:

Psalm 106:6
King James Version (KJV)

6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.

Isaiah 64:5-7
King James Version (KJV)

5 Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways: behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved.

6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.

Jeremiah 3:25

Jeremiah 14:7
King James Version (KJV)

7 O Most High, though our iniquities testify against us, do thou it for thy name’s sake: for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against thee.

(We see that Daniel fasted. Also notice that most of all the prophets fasted when they wanted a blessing help or revelation about something from the Most High and the Most High either blessed them, helped them or gave them revelation about something. Its something to fasting. We see that Daniel did more than just pray he fasted. If you turn to the Daniel 10:1-12 you can see what happen when daniel prayed and fasted and humbled himself. We see that Daniel wanted understanding of a vision that he had and he wanted to know about the destruction of Jeruelasm. Once he fasted the Most High gave him revelatoin about that dream.)

Luke 2:36-38
King James Version (KJV)

36 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;

37 And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served Power with fastings and prayers night and day.

38 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Most High, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.

Precept to Luke 2:36:

Precepts to Luke 2:38:

Lamentations 3:25-26
King James Version (KJV)

25 The Most High is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.

26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Most High.

Mark 15:43
King James Version (KJV)

43 Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of Power, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Yashiya.

Luke 24:21
King James Version (KJV)

21 But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.

(Anna the prophetess was an old woman around the age 84 years old. We see that this woman fasted day and night, we must ask ourselves is this how we are living our life and our walk while serveing the Most High. We show from the previous stories of the prophets and the people that if you live this way with fasting and praying that the Most High POWER will reveal things to you or bless you. It said that she didn’t depart from the temple. She was always telling people about the redemption they was about to get. She knew who the Messiah was as a baby.)

Matthew 17:14-21
King James Version (KJV)

14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,

15 The Most High have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.

16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.

17 Then Yashiya answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.

18 And Yashiya rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.

19 Then came the disciples to Yashiya apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?

20 And Yashiya said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Precept to Matthew 17:14:

Luke 9:37
King James Version (KJV)

37 And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met him.

Precepts to Matthew 17:20:

Matthew 21:21
King James Version (KJV)

21 Yashiya answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

King James Version (KJV)

23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Luke 17:6
King James Version (KJV)

6 And the Most High said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

1 Corinthians 12:9
King James Version (KJV)

9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

1 Corinthians 13:2
King James Version (KJV)

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

(Even though the disciples had power they couldn’t cure this child, so the disciples came to the Messiah and said “Why could not we cast him out?” Remember he gave the disciple the power to heal and cast out unclean spirits and etc. Also know that not everyone is not given these powers, not to say nothing is impossible, but what allot of people must understand is that just because you accept the Messiah that doesn’t mean that you will be able to do miracles. The Messiah tells them why they couldn’t cast out that spirit by saying this “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” Fasting is very powerful.)

Conclusion:

Prayer and fasting is very powerful when wanting a blessing or answer from the Most High POWER of Israel. You see when you Pray and fast it’s like you are denying yourself and taking your focus off what you want and putting your attention and focus on what the Heavenly Father wants from you and to give you. Fasting and prayer can help in any situation if stay focus and dedicated. I say this if we as the children of Israel fast more each day then and only then we will begin to see a Change within our nation. As we just have read through this study lesson Fasting and prayer was apart of the children of Israel daily life. You see when they wanted to repent of their sins or if they wanted help they fasted. There are different ways you can fast as I’ve stated above. So let us fast more so we can truly hear the voice of the Most High. We must deny ourselves with fasting.

Tobit 12:8 Prayer is good with fasting and alms and righteousness. A little with righteousness is better than much with unrighteousness. It is better to give alms than to lay up gold:

  1. Thank you so very much.

    Great info sister, but just wanted to let you know Paul was a false prophet so using his books isn’t a good idea. Now I understand how you may have based some of your info on his teachings but I assure you look deeper into him, he’s not who he appeared to be and take note of the true apostles’ reaction towards him, and that of James as well.

  3. Hello, if there are twelve tribes of Israel and All are of people of color, were do the white race come in at? Are they not any part of a tribe?
